Ben Greenfield Interviews Dr. Jay About the Hanu Wearable...While Wearing the Hanu Wearable!
1:08:17Welcome back to another episode of the Hano health podcast. I got another special one for you, and I don't mean to bombard you with all things, Ben Greenfield, but this is two weeks in a row that we wanted to release some content from Ben Greenfield.Now it's not actually an interview with Ben Greenfield. It's actually me on Ben Greenfield's podcast. So if you're a follower of Ben Greenfield, you might have heard this one, but if not, you'll get the special opportunity to hear me being interviewed by Ben Greenfield on his podcast about all things HRV and Hanu. Now this was a really special occasion for me as a podcaster, as a friend of Ben's. And the reason it was so special is because obviously we wanted to show Ben and his audience the world of Hanu. But one thing that I loved about this podcast that you will find really interesting is because Ben from the very beginning of the podcast has the Hanu strap on, he's got his app open and we walk through a lot of the features within the application. So he asked me questions on what he's seeing, why his data is doing what it's doing, etc. And I was able to provide an in-depth explanation of what's going with the app and device in real time.We walk through many of the different features, like the resonance frequency assessment that you get to do making sure that you're tracking things like bolt score, doing all of these beautiful practices.We talk about this idea of snapshot, which is like a testing feature morning readiness reading feature. All of the goodies are in there. So Ben and I unpack it all in this podcast so that I hope that you really enjoy this one because it was a blast for me to do and to be able to share with Ben's audience.And I'm very grateful that Ben said to go ahead and share it with the Hanu audience as well. So if you've already listened to the podcast, yes, it's the one that I did withBen recently. But if you haven't listened to it, here's your opportunity to do it and to support Hanu while you do it by listening on our podcast, couple other ways that you can help support the podcast.Then you can write to us: [email protected] and we will send you a Hanu Health goody pack full of amazing Hanu and oxygen advantage gear. I hope that you really enjoy this podcast episode that I did with the one and only Ben Greenfield on his podcast. He's wearing this thing, telling you about what he sees and you will be able to experience this yourself soon.In this episode, you'll learn:-What does “Hanu” mean?…03:50Hanu a Hawaiian word that means breath-Jay's personal journey to becoming an expert in HRV…05:15Specialized in “health psychology”“Demoralization”: learned helplessness and hopelessnessChronic ailments can be traced to demoralizationBiofeedback training with military veterans produced noticeable improvements in health and well-being-How is the Hanu wearable different from other devices that track HRV?…11:46Measurement in most wearables is very standardizedLooking at HRV continuously, all day longAlerts when there are dramatic changes in HRV “Life Events”“Super compensation”Uses same algorithms as devices like Oura RingHanu Health PodcastPodcast with Dr. Jay Wiles:A Deep Dive Into HRV: How To Use Heart Rate Variability To Optimize Your Sleep, Stress, Recovery, Performance, Nervous System Balance & Much More!-What causes HRV...
What is Heart Rate Variability, And How to Use It to Optimize Your Life (orig. aired on Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast)
1:52:46This is a podcast that I recorded about two years ago for Ben Greenfield. It's a solosode that I did for him all on HRV. Now this podcast is so incredibly dense and long. We're talking about a deep dive into all things, HRV. We're going to talk about all the different metrics of HRV. We're going to get into depth in terms of psychophysiology, what produces HRV.There are a couple caveats before we jump into this podcast. There are some things that I've changed my mind on. I recorded this two years ago, and guess what? The science changes and let me explain the two things. Number one is I provide an entire section on normative ranges. I'm actually going to give you permission to skip it. The reason is because I am coming more and more to the conclusion that those normative range bases that I presented are just there as a novelty. They're just there as something that if you're curious, you've got it. Remember we're supposed to only self compare as opposed to normatively compare, but I spend a really long time talking about these normative comparisons and providing frameworks for those based on age among other things.You can listen to it, but feel free to skip it. If you already know that it's basically pointless to compare yourself normatively, but if you're interested in where you fall by all means like, go for it. The second thing is that I utilize the term autonomic balance or HRV balance a lot in this podcast. The science has already has also concluded that terminology probably isn't the best terminology. On one hand, you can say yes, there is a level of autonomic balance that happens. But on the other hand, that's way more of an oversimplification of what actually happens. What I want you to framework this in, when you hear it on the podcast, is that we should think about our nervous system and HRV in terms of double footed driving. Whereas we don't want just have a foot on the gas pedal, which is the sympathetic nervous system, and then we slam on the brakes. We can actually drive with both feet and modulate those. And the point is not to engage in balance. I always come back to the whole point of HRV biofeedback and training is to train autonomic control.You can tell your sympathetic nervous system what you want to do with it at any given time, as well as your parasympathetic nervous system that comes from training. That's why we created Hanu. It's why you have this system, hopefully in your hands, or you're using it right now is because it is intended to train autonomic control.So those are the two key points that I wanted to mention. Again, I'm excited to be able to bring you this really deep dive. And I have another podcast coming from the Ben Greenfield podcast that's all about, Hanu. Not just a deep dive in HRV, but Ben actually asks me all about Hanu, the company and mission. So be on the lookout for that one coming very soon.Last thing before we jump in, just to remind you, if you have already pre-ordered, it's time for you to complete that order.
